I chose this school for it's year-round schooling and the Lego Robotics Program. My child is a sixth grader, so it is our first year attending. My son wants to be an engineer when he gets older, and the Lego Robotics program is a great way start. Because of government cut back, all schools in our county are suffering from teacher cuts to materials needed lacking in the classroom. During sixth grade orientation, parents were asked to donate monies so computers could be purchase for the school. When I inquired about the Robotics Program, the director advised me of when they would start, and how the may be able to go to the state competition, pending funding. I feel our school would be a good candidate to receive this funding because of the continue afford to keep extra-curriculum activities in the school, and it would help in keeping the children at pace with technology, as well. I am parent who tries her best to put my children's education first, and would be more than greatly if Anne Chestnut Middle School if a recipient for funding.
My child has not had a very good experience so far this year. His core teachers act like they dont have time for the kids who don't catch on as quickly as the others do.
I was interviewed for a job here and was told I was one of two candidates and would get a call one way or another. The call never came.
Hi, I'm a student here at Anne Chesnutt Middle School, and I love this school. It's the best thing that's happend to me so far, and I'm doing great here. Yes, there might be some drama here, but hey, people are different and I'm sure this happens at every school. But as long as were still learning and doing our best it's all that matters, right? The principal is wonderful and so are the teachers. They teach us to be the best we can be and become successful. Honestly i don't know what people mean when they say stuff like "it's bad" or "Too much drama!". they're wrong.
this school is fun but dramafied. lots of fights with chapel. but its okay. teachers are very caring.
This school is excellent beyond excellent. I am a rising 9th grader. Just left chesnutt, and this is one of the best schools i have been to yet. I really enjoyed being at chesnutt. I always had good grades A's B's and ive never had good grades like that at any other school. The year-round thing is awesome! The teachers are great, they provide tons of stuff to help students with their work. They always help the students. The principal is amazing. And all the people who work there are VERY caring. Ive never been to a better school!
My son is an A/B honor roll student at ACMS. He has done exceptionally well and likes all of his teachers and classmates. I know that the principal would take the time to hear your concerns and work with you and your boys to help them have better experiences. Remember it is not always the teacher in many instances the kids these days can be extremely rude and disrespectful to their teachers. I would highly recommend ACMS to any person looking to relocate to the 71st attendance area. Make an appointment with the principal and take a tour of the school and see for yourself how great ACMS really is!!!
I have two children attending ACMS and both my boys have had terrible experiences. Teachers and faculty demand children to show respect when they don't give respect back. You have to give in order to receive. My sons are A, B students and they have been treated unfairly. I would not recommend anyone to send their children to this school.
I like this ABCI thing too. My son had some issues at the beginning of the year. His teachers really cared about him and have helped him do much better. One teacher in particular has really had an impact on him. He talks about her all the time. She is always ready to help - before school, after school, Saturdays, anytime! It has made a difference. He never liked math or really even wanted to go to school, but now it's a completely different story. I wish all my kids had attended ACMS!
Need more parent participation. Its like pulling eye teeth trying to get parents to come help at their childrens school.
This school has its ups&downs, but overall, the teachers are lovin, the principal is there when you need him. And if your not a bad child, no problems indeed.!
I am a student at ACMS! I love the school and almost all f my teachers. I think ACMS is a very good school I have beengoing there for three years now
as a student at anne chesnutt im completely disappointed. all around the school is OK. Once you get to the classrooms though, its a different story. im a sixth grader who is a straight A' student. i was very annoyed. I loved my teachers but the way the schedule is set its only convenient for 8th graders. 6th grade electives are chosen and arent available until the end of the day. I really don't like this school and had many bad experiences.
I presently teach at this school. The is located across the street from Lewis Chapel Middle School. Both school are rich with knoweldge and legacy. My children who are two and four they will attend Anne Chestnut Middle and eventually enter into Seventy First School High. I love the 71st school district and believe better things are yet to come.
I have attended this school for the past two years, and I have to admit, this school isn't the best, but it's getting better.
My child attended this school just for two school years, but I was completely satisfied with everything I experienced. The entire staff was just great. The people in the front office had always been extremely helpful. The teachers my child had were absolutlely wonderful. They were strict but nice and willing to help the students. They also introduced material my older child did not learn until high school. All of the teachers are fair and treat the students as equals. Mr. Hatch is a wonderful principal and he gets involved with the students along with the parents at assemblies and other events. I could not have imagined my child in a better school.
My child has attended for 3 years and we have been satisfied. I believe parent involvement makes a difference. There is a new principal this year and hopefully he will bring great things with him.
troubles with this school from day one. Students are not treated as equals. Music program was worst I had ever seen. took almost 6 weeks before students started playing their instruments.
